Hiroki Kuroda tosses strong start Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/3/14) Yankees pitcher Hiroki Kuroda tossed a strong start Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Kuroda allowed one run on four hits over seven innings. He struck out eight and did not issue any walks. Kuroda was excellent to begin the game, tossing five scoreless frames. He gave up his only run in the sixth. After hitting Jemile Weeks with a pitch, Kuroda gave up an RBI double to Brock Holt. He was able to escape the inning without giving up any additional runs. Kuroda went on to pitch a scoreless seventh, but was pulled to start the eighth.
With the win, Kuroda improved to 10-8. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.
|Hiroki Kuroda finished 2013 with a 3.31 ERA and 1.16 WHIP -- numbers nearly identical to his 2012 campaign (3.32 ERA and 1.17 WHIP). He's been the picture of reliability since his 2008 debut, and the fact that he's 39 this season doesn't mean much more than the fact that he was 38 in 2013. Kuroda isn't going to bring a lot of strikeouts to the table (he has a 6.8 K/9 over six seasons), but there's significant Fantasy value in a pitcher you can count on to throw 200 innings and keep ERA and WHIP low. Kuroda is one of the more underrated assets in Fantasy, and should be off the board by the middle rounds of most drafts.
